Re: Analog_Bridge to D-Star audio levels

Steven Blackford

Hey Mike,
    Hope things are going well.  What happened w/ the audio levels from when we initially setup your bridge?  I've setup various different bridges & the only time I've had to modify the audio levels was when going from ASL<->DMR.  That did take a while to get the audio level set.   Post your current Analog_Bridge.ini file & we can start then start modifying it to bring the levels to what you need.  You just need to do it in small increments & test it.  

As far as different AMBE devices goes, you can use the PIDV, ThumbDV for the DMR side of things and you can also use them for D-Star along w/ the original Blue DV-Dongle as well.  I use a PIDV and a DV-Dongle for my DStar<->DMR bridge.  PIDV's are great because you don't have the USB issues to deal with on PI's, but they're hard to come by these days.

I noticed the source of my problem was setting AUDIO_UNITY on the ASL side in Analog_Bridge.ini.  Unity sounds better but the amplitude is probably 40% of what it needs to be.  Is there any way to bump up that level?  If I set AUDIO_USE_AGC I get the right drive level but the audio quality is a little less smooth.  I also experimented with AUDIO_USE_GAIN and that is about the same as with AGC interms of audio fidelity.

Question 2:  What  other AMBE interfaces can work with Analog_Bridge besides the ThumbDV from NW Digital?  I wonder if there is a better transcoder out there.
